Miu Miu Balloon Gathered Top Tote
To me this newbie looks something like a super sized blown up plastic-ey looking leather bag (much like Marni’s Balloon Bag). Don’t get my wrong, when Marni’s balloon bag first made its debut a while back, I was a total fan of the puffy inflatable purse look, but now the thrill has died off. What do you guys and gals think? Is Miu Miu’s new swelled designer handbag a hit or miss?

The body of this purse is made of grained leather with a gathering effect at the top. Also features an easy-in/easy-out magnetic snap closure, double rolled leather handles plus a removable shoulder strap for the days you don’t feel like toting along your bag on the crook of your arm. Right now it’s only available in this red (Rosso) color with gold-tone hardware at Barney’s.
